122 | BOAT CARE | LAHNAKOSKI An Oars Length Ahead since 1930 LAHNAKOSKI - The essence of LAHNA’S method is to select timber by eye and touch - light, warm and suited to hand. LAHNA products draw on decades of tradition. You can certainly see and feel it in LAHNA oars, paddles, boathooks and flagpoles. The leading manufacturer of wooden oars in Europe, Lahnakoski is a family enterprise where expertise and experience have been honed in three generations. OARS A good oar combines demanding technical properties and a pleasant feel. A good oar is balanced and of the right length. The blade must be light and the handle slightly heavier. The blade of a good oar moves beautifully in the water: it does not splash, bounce or create too much swirl. That is what a LAHNA oar is like. Made of wood. Our extensive range provides the best oar for every boat.

LAHNA paddles are comfortable to use. Wood is a light, warm and flexible material, which conforms to its user. TIPS FOR THE SELECTION OF A CANOE PADDLE When you are sitting in the canoe and the blade of the paddle is completely under water, the handle of the paddle should be between your eye and shoulder line. If you do not have your canoe handy when you are buying a paddle, it is advisable to choose a paddle that reaches to your chin which is usually from 140 to 150 cm.
